Wedgewood in San Clemente is one of my favorite venues- all inclusive, staff is top notch & its always a fun production. For the braver brides, the beach is a 4 min drive, so we all hopped in my car & got some amazing shots for 30 minutes. What a great day.
Its a pretty unique place & shot at the right time, looks magical. The first time I shot there, this place had those knee-high weeds that look great in photos. They must have just cut everything a week before I shot there. I still love how this turned out tho.
Sunsets are a finicky animal. Often times, I meet with a client at a Starbucks & they tell me “We want a photo like we saw on your website of the sunset- its beautiful!” & when their wedding comes, we schedule the couple shots to end with a sunset shot. But sometimes mother nature doesn’t want to participate & the sunset is flat. There’s nothing you can do about it if the sunset doesn’t pop. Its a bummer because I know they clients want a memorable sunset & I want to deliver it to them. But sometimes mother nature kicks down the door like the KoolAid Man & says “today is the day!” & absolutely floors everyone with an incredible sunset. That was the case in Egan & Rachael’s day. & it seemed so fitting because as we were doing the family shots, Rachael’s grandmother started choking & Egan saved her with a quick CPR technique (he’s a fire fighter). So maybe someone was blessing us from above with this sunset. It sure felt like it. It was one of the best sunsets I have ever seen. What an incredible day.
